Abstract

This special issue presents a range of articles that represent the under-researched phenomenon of men as victims of violence and abuse in intimate relationships in a globalized world where men are often viewed as incapable of being victimized. This special issue presents the work of scholars from diverse backgrounds and locales. The contents of this Special Issue are an acknowledgment that men are also victimized in intimate relationships and in need of intervention. Despite the wide range of scholars from disparate geographical locations, the authors present articles from multi-disciplinary vantage points that are focused on a central theme, men’s victimization and abuse in intimate settings. In so doing, the authors have pushed back against the historic yet still prominent narrative that men are solely perpetrators and women are solely victims of violence and abuse in intimate settings.
